I like the fans you made.  Can you explain how to make?  I need for a Christmas favor.  I could make out of old Christmas cards. 

For the fans I used this free template http://www.intimateweddings.com/blog/free-wedding-templates-diy-wedding-programs/ It's super easy but time consuming. I suggest enlisting help

Oh so beautiful!!!  You did such a lovely job!!!!  I love it!!!   Did you guys do food?  I'm trying to stick to a tight budget, but food seems to really carry a wallop!
Congratulations on the beginning of your life journey with each other!

My sister offered to cook, but we paid for the food. It came to $350. We had Frito Pies and Posole (if you have never been to New Mexico this will mean nothing to you). There are a bunch of good sites about cooking for a large group on a budget. The trick is not to offer ten different options. People know you are just starting out, they aren't expecting to be impressed with caviar.

Sounds Tasty!  I need to get my butt out to New Mexico by the sounds of it! Wink  I think it's too late to ask my mom for a sister though! LOL!  You sound blessed to have yours!  I'm leaning towards asking some ladies at the church to help serve pasta... a build your own pasta dish sort of thing... with Tomato sauce, or Alfredo, or Blush to choose from, and a few toppings like meatballs, or grilled chicken.  It's encouraging to hear I'm not the only one not catering....

ha ha. Yes I did. I work at a college called The Institute of American Indian Arts. Thy were amazing, letting us use the Hogan for a sweet price and they threw in the chairs so we didn't have to rent any.

Everything looks spectacular (can't wait to see more of that dress!) but I adore the 'photo booth' and typewriter guest book ideas. Fantastic Smiley

Absolutely amazing!

I love the idea of the sheet and shoes! The antique jewellry finds look so good on the rough edged fabric!

I must say, that is one fantastic looking bed sheet! I guess you can say your hubby got you under the sheets before the wedding! lol

I hope you don't mind, anyone I hear of that is getting married I am going to tell them about your photo booth, I think that is the most creative idea I have ever seen!

All the best!

YOU MADE YOUR DRESS OUT OF BED SHEETS!!!!! I can't wait to see your post.... that pic you put up is such a tease!

everything you did looks so lovely and i think you made a good call on splurging on the house and going crafty and frugal on the wedding, because they both look amazing!

congrats!
